I am just crossing my fingers for rampant bankruptcy. Think post-WWI Germany. I want it to cost $200 to buy a loaf of bread. I'll just pay off my loans with a wheelbarrow full of cash.

I see nothing wrong with this.

I've been secretly hoping for a population-thinning India-Pakistan nuclear war for years now.

For my long-term interests, I wouldn't mind if all law schools in the nation closed down for about 4-6 years starting the day I graduate.

You just KNOW that some serious inflation is on the way with the way we've been printing T-bills. Still, federal loans are 6-8% so it would have to be some pretty serious inflation, doubt it will get that high. I don't think even stagflation was that bad.

30 year treasuries are at 4.6%. We might get lucky but something would have to happen beyond normal growth.

I mean, it would be pretty good for debtors and since I'm massively in debt and the US is massively in debt. . . well, China can just shove it.

WitsEnd wrote:I have been a lurker but haven't posted until now. This is my situation of which I am deeply ashamed. It's just not supposed to be like this. I have as my moniker suggests come to my witsend of the situation I'm in.

I live in suburban NY and graduated from one of the TTT/TTTT institutions. I graduated middle of the pack (3.1 gpa) I passed the bar on the first try but have not been able to secure gainful employment. The best I could do is working retail for $8.50/hr and only part-time. I sent out hundreds of resumes and can't get a lawyer job....regardless of the pay....can't get anything decent or paying above what I'm making at my clothing store. I even got turned down from the local 7-11 night shift job.

A couple months ago I did sales work for a title insurance company but that fell through. Between gas and only getting paid on commission that deal put me in the hole even more. as a matter of fact thats when I got stopped driving without insurance because I couldn't afford it.

I an 29 have 30K in undergrad debt and 120K in law school debt and a 5K bar loan. Interest rates are variable but I am obviously in default so it doesn't matter. I clear about $180 a week. I am now getting evicted and have nowhere to go. My landlord was decent, but she could only take so much and had me evicted and the sheriff just put a 72 hour notice on my door.

My father is dead and my mother can't help me as she is only living on SSI and can't take me in because she rents an apartment with a roomate. I have no siblings or other family. I have some friends but I am ashamed to ask them to take me in as they, themselves aren't doing well either.

I am at my wits end. I really don't know what my next step will be. I have about $300 bucks to my name right now, no car, no assets other than some of my cloths, some cheap furniture, my 5 year old laptop and my late fathers class ring.

I never though this could happen to me. I never did drugs, never drank, never been arrested, I did everything I was supposed to do. I went to college, went on to law school yet I'm facing homelessness in the winter. It's just not supposed to be this way.


LMFAO. Thanks for this, I needed a good laugh.

Making fun of homeless people makes me feel better about myself, therefore I will make fun of homeless homeless people to feel better about myself, because making fun of homeless people makes me feel better about myself.
